    Tranny in a Box

    Packed up my tranny into a box getting ready to fly into Tucson for SSUSA this weekend...

    Has a custom coreagated plastic box made in 26"x24"x12" so it shouldn't have any oversize baggage charges... Link to place that made the box was $45 + ship and should hopefully last a few trips...

    Here's a few pic's this is a large tranny, fixed, and rigid.... might be even a more tight fit with a suss fork and dangly bits on the bike but i think still quite doable...

    Great way to travel. What rigid fork are you running. Finally how tall are you? I am stuck between a medium and a large.
